Home

It's been a crazy, stressful, and emotional month. Blessing by blessing, we cried, survived, and finally arrived!



It's so good to be home.

FIFTEENTH BATH


Ladies and Gentlemen, we've got ourselves a water loving baby.
He just needed a few weeks to get his feet wet.

Captain Jack & The King

Dear Captain Jack,

I'm so glad you came to visit me. I had so much fun with you.

We played together.


We slept together.

We schlepped all over town together.


We even put up with shopping.


My Dad didn't put up with it very well.

We took baths together.


And we listened to our Moms talk and talk and talk.
This was important bonding time for them.


Remember when my Dad babysat us while our Moms went to a movie?
Wasn't that funny when he forgot which one was his kid?


He remembered later.


Maybe we can be roommates together somewhere someday.



Thanks for being my best buddy, Jack.
I'm so glad we're only 15 days apart.


I miss you and I'll see you in July!

Love,
The King

Roaring Out of Hibernation

For the first five weeks of Anderson's life we hunkered down inside our tiny apartment... and loved it. Comfy sweats, no make-up and lots of naps, venturing out only for doctor's appointments and an occasional Target run. Two weeks ago we decided to hunker no more! We dug up our Bobbi Brown and Bjorn so we could hit the social scene and we haven't stopped since. It started with our trip to Souderton, Pennsylvania to visit the Madsens. Here are some highlights:

John kicked my Park Avenue trash at the new Electronic Banking Monopoly...


and we all rocked out with Rock Band.


We enjoyed Philly Cheesesteaks
(but agreed Janae & John's home cooked meals were better).


The girls shopped in the darling town of Skipback...


while the boys climbed walls...


and Danielle found Harley's wallet.



We saw the sites of Philly...


and overall, the trip made everyone smile.





We returned home just in time to see Nicole Diva. I LOVE any chance to get together with any one of my Divas. They are the most impressive and fabulous group of women I know. This Diva, in particular, has a job I envy (event planner who travels the world), a huge heart, just the right amount of spunk and a killer tan (thanks to her recent weekend at Duck Beach). We had such a great time going out to lunch, catching up, making dinner and catching up some more. She even served as Anderson's first "babysitter" as I ran to pick up Harley at the Metro.



Nicole only graced our Aerobed with her presence one night, then hours later passed it on to the next set of visitors, Mindy & Jack Lind. Stay tuned for more on the King/Lind BIG BABY SLEEPOVER!:)
